ATI x1800xt not running good as expected

post #1 of 59
Thread Starter 
well i just ran fraps in fear, and it didn't go past 30 fps, and this is at like low settings. Im pretty pissed, my old xfx 7800gt did 100+ fps on some maps with no problem. I've been noticing that the gameplay doesn't seem that good. *** is going on with my card? other than that I haven't noticed anything else, 3dmark06 score was like 4666 or sumtin like that. I'm about to get rid of this and get an nvidia card. Suggestions? help? will rep, thank you..

btw - upgraded driver do 6.10

before you get new drivers be sure to use driver cleaner

What were you thinking when you went from a 7800GT to an X1800???

They are on the same playing field man... if not the 7800GT being better. That's not even an upgrade... it's a sidegrade lol

Well you should have made the jump to the X1900 or X1950 for a new system or just kept the 7800GT...

Perhaps your X1800 is underclocked though? Or in need of overclocking

prolly overclocking, but honestly, I don't wanna mess with this card. I just wanna get rid of it I'm thinking, and get an nvidia 7800gt, gtx, or 7900 something.

Yea I'm thinkin the 7900GTO would be a very nice upgrade

Unless you want to wait a bit and pay premium for a G80...

ill take it

although 30fps in fear my 9800pro can do... i think there is a serious issue going on with the card... get ati tool and watch the temps.. video cards will slow down when they get hot..

1. make sure all video drivers in the system are only for that card, goto device manager and see what all is under video
2. take ur finger when the card is in the middle of a game... and touch the card where the gpu is and see how hot it is.. u should be able to easily keep ur finger there for 5 sec.. if not.. get a cooler or something to drop temps..

Considering that the x1800xt was better than the 7800GTX, then it might be a user error Or maybe the card is defective......

Did you go into control panel and remove the old nforce drivers, reboot, THEN run driver cleaner MULTIPLE times?
